Georgia: Instant Runoff Voting

Campaign Status: Active

The Policy

HB200 would give local officials in Georgia the option to conduct elections in cities and towns using Instant Runoff Voting (IRV).


Georgia is one of only three states in the country to hold runoff elections for general election contests. If no candidate wins a majority of the vote in the general, the two candidates with the most votes advance to a runoff.

After high-profile U.S. Senate races went to unnecessary and expensive runoffs in 2020 and 2022, there’s bipartisan momentum toward changing Georgia’s elections to an Instant Runoff Voting (IRV) system. City elections are a great place to introduce this concept to the electorate – often these races are mostly non-partisan, which means they can attract larger fields of candidates.

Who’s Involved?
